It’s a Wrap!  We have just concluded a 10-part blog series featuring many of our exclusive “At-A-Glance” study guides.  These guides were distilled from over 100 years of combined instructional expertise in Series exam prep. Do yourself a favor and take advantage of these resources any time you need a proven strategy for passing a series exam. And please pass them on – all are invited to benefit from our vast experience.

Three Takeaways

In the Series exam world, each exam has its own “personality”.  FINRA, MSRB, and NASAA exams all differ in style and perspective; principal and rep level exams emphasize different aspects of the same rules.  The At-A-Glance study guides drill down to the core of each exam to expose its nuances. Our objective is to minimize the surprise factor when you test.  We want you to feel confident so you can earn your passing score with reduced stress.

While the focus of every exam is different, below are three critical success tactics that apply regardless of the exam you are preparing for.

1)     Take time to develop a study strategy that works with your schedule. Prioritize it and work it thoroughly so that you peak at the right time.

2)     Don’t take any of these exams lightly.  Your experience in and knowledge of financial markets is not enough.  You need to review material and especially practice plenty of questions to master the information and its application in test questions.

3)     Be realistic about your readiness.  Our guides define the scores you should achieve on practice exams before you test.  Don’t expect a miracle at the test center if you’re not achieving the target scores.
